Sorry to be a bit confused by your message.  I'll take a shot at an 
answer, but please keep in mind that it is late and I am going from 
my flawed memory, so please excuse me in advance for any organic 
memory failures I may be experiencing.

I believe that the Syslog referred to below is a UNIX service that 
works on UDP port 512(?).  Unless you have a specific program on your 
WinME box that supports Syslog, I don't think you will be able to 
capture and process same.  It could be that WinME natively supports 
Syslog, but I am not sure about that.

Or are you saying that you have a packet sniffer and are not seeing 
any UDP activity on the port for Syslog on your network?  In that 
case, I think you will probably need to seek out vendor support on 
the issue, unless somebody else on list has the device to which you 
refer in their environment.
